Mohsen Abdelmoumen: You are talking about a plan for the destruction of nation-States, especially by breaking their armies. It is a terrible fact. Can you tell us about this project?

Col. Régis Chamagne: The objective of the financial oligarchy is to seize the riches of the world, and to achieve this, humanity must be enslaved. Thirty years ago, some 60 people owned 50 percent of the world’s wealth. At the time, the image used was that of a bus: we could fill a bus with those who owned 50 percent of the world’s wealth. Today, they are only eight people who own half the wealth of the world. Lire la suite »

Mohsen Abdelmoumen: How do you explain the long history of US interventionism? What is your analysis?

Dr. Gary Brumback: “Interventionism” is a very appropriate term. It covers a lot of territory, and that is exactly what America has been doing even before she became a nation 240 years ago. The US is a habitual interventionist. Domestically it is in the form of fascism, or a police state, that treads on human rights. Internationally, it is in the form of militaristic imperialism.

What do Frantz Fanon and Algerian Revolution represent for you?

Frantz Fanon is to me an anticolonialist writer who, perhaps more than any other writer familiar to me, explains the nature of European and US colonialism and imperialism and its effects on the colonized and the colonizer. When using his writings as a viewfinder, I am able to understand the psychological meanings of imperialism and the resistance to it. This applies to situations overseas and in what the Black Panthers and others called the internal Black colony in the United States. Lire la suite »

Pr. John Bellamy Foster. DR.

Mohsen Abdelmoumen: Can we consider you a modern Marxist?

John Bellamy Foster: What is meant by “modern” nowadays is always a complex topic, but setting that aside I would answer Yes, in the concrete sense that I am a engaged in the development of historical materialism in the present and see my analysis as part of a broad revolutionary intellectual heritage and scientific tradition going back to Marx. I am particularly concerned with the reunification of Marxism in theory and practice, transcending the Cold War divisions, which split apart Marxism as well, and building on the classical historical materialist tradition.

Mohsen Abdelmoumen: Is there really a difference between the candidate Hillary Clinton and the candidate Bernie Sanders?

Michael Yates: They have much in common: career politicians, much similarity in foreign policy outlook (including support for the criminal Israeli state), tied to the Democratic Party, unable or unwilling to critique capitalism itself. However, there are real differences. Clinton is an active war criminal and has done a great deal of damage in the world, from being in league with her husband to end the system of aid to poor people and to greatly expand the prison population to wreaking havoc upon nations around the world. She is utterly beholden to the rich finance capitalists and their institutions and will continue to do their bidding if elected. Lire la suite »

Mohsen Abdelmoumen: You are a great American thinker converted to Islam, how do you live your faith in the US?

Dr. Kevin Barrett: “Great?” I’m not sure about that, and don’t expect to see my bust on Mount Rushmore any time soon. Anyway…Islam is the fastest-growing religion in the US. But today, American Muslims are on the defensive. Neoconservative Zionists have orchestrated a huge, well-funded propaganda war on Islam, and they have succeeded in spreading Islamophobia. Today it is harder to “live your faith” in public than it was in the 1990s. I reverted to Islam in 1993. Lire la suite »

Mohsen Abdelmoumen: Why do you qualify 2016 year of barbarism in one of your articles?

Ben Schreiner: In reality, we have been living in well over a decade of barbarism. That being the barbarism the U.S. unleashed upon the world with the launch of its 2001 global “war on terror.” 2016, though, appears headed towards a dangerous deepening of that barbarism. The global economy, never fully recovered from the crash of 2008, is once again greatly imperiled. All the recessionary warning lights are now flashing for anyone to see. Lire la suite »
